The author has shared 14 other item(s).


Bug Report: https://github.com/lovac42/SlackersDelight Update Note: Hotkeys and other settings have been moved to Config, use addon manager configuration to change these settings. The 2.0 branch can no longer be updated. It is locked down. I can't even update or delete my own addon. Do not download the outdated 2.0 branch using the link below. Get the fresh version on github instead: https://github.com/lovac42/SlackersDelight/releases About: This addon adds a defer button and sends the current card in the reviewer to a filter deck. Cards can then be studied or emptied at a later time. It can also be used as a trash bin for flash card hoarders. (search for addon:Hoarders' Delight for this feature) License: This addon is a labor of love and licensed under the GPL. If you find it useful, consider paying something forward by supporting some charitable endeavors.

Thank you!
I've been using this add-on for a month and it's helping me a lot to memorize some difficult cards =)

Very useful!

Exactly what I needed! Thank you!

I have math decks where some cards require a statistics program in front of me to answer, not possible when going on public transport and clearing out cards on my mobile.
I'd like to leave those complex cards for when I get home and leave the easier mental math / handheld calculator stuff on the bus.

So this app is perfect for my scenario! Thank you so much!

Great app add-on. And thank for that person who asked about the Hotkey; this made the add-on use way better. But just like his/her follow-up question, I hope we can modify the Hotkey coz the Shift key requirement is a bit clanky.



Awesome! Worked perfect! I used the letter "u" because some of the other nearby letters did not work.
Thank you and you are awesome!

Changing hotkeys is at the top of the code, it says hotkeys="_". I should update these old addons to use the new config format, but it was never popular enough to bother with.

This has been a great app and have been using it for the past six months or so. Thank you, author.

Question though: is there a keyboard shortcut to trigger this? Cause i have been using the "Customize Keyboard Shortcuts" add-on for a pure keyboard interaction with anki when reviewing. Everything for me will be perfect if i get the ability to not lift my hand away from the keyboard when i want to trigger the "Defer" button.




To Author...

Thanks for the response! The key "_" (underscore) does indeed correspond to the "Defer" button! Thanks for the tip!

Follow up though: is there a way to remap this key to a different physical key? Especially to a one that doesn't need to be preceded by the pressing of the shift key. I prefer letter "H" for example cause i use the J,K,L and ; keys for the main answer buttons.

Thanks again.

If there are no addon interference, it's the _ (underscore) key.

Hi, I wonder if the "defer" button is available on iOS ANKI app? I tried, but the app seems to have no "defer" button except for the deck titled "Slackers Postponed Delights".

Thanks in advance. :)

Addons do not work on mobile. This is stated in the manual which everyone should read and ankify.

Also great in case you have similar cards (quasi siblings, but from different notes).

Addon functions, but is not supported within filtered decks so doing random reviews with this addon is impossible. Is this a planned feature?
Comment from author
Feature added.

That is great!
It's very useful
Thank you

Awesome addon! I was wondering if completing the reviews moves the cards back to their respective subdecks?
Comment from author
Yes it will. It is the same as filtered decks with reschedule turned on. But Anki's FD reviews bypass the load balancer addon, it wouldn't make a difference for a few postponed cards which makes up about 0.1% of your collection, just make sure you don't abuse it.

It works great but it has disabled " reset card scheduling" add on, so i had to delete it :(
Comment from author
Seems like the two addons patches different parts of Anki and worked well on Windows, so there should not be any conflicts on other platforms either. Perhaps a user misconfiguration somewhere. <img src="https://i.ytimg.com/vi/fw9Bcv4qJDE/hqdefault.jpg" />

Wonderful this addon. I do not know how to live without.

this feature is really missing from the main software. This is relevant for many people.

This is well-thought-out software and not some half-baked stuff: It circumvents the quirks of Anki's old scheduler and avoids user error (info about compatibility with mobile apps, you can't accidently change the slacker deck options).

cooperates well with the add-on "More Answer Buttons for New Cards".
